Fandango Survey Crowns Avengers: Infinity War As Summer’s Most-Anticipated Film


Is Avengers: Infinity War summer’s most-anticipated movie? You bet it is. And the latest Fandango poll has just made it official.

After sending out the feelers to more than 4,500 film fans, the online ticket giant has officially crowned Infinity War as the most-anticipated movie of the summer. Which is fitting, really, given it previously named the Marvel epic as the most-anticipated new release of 2018.

For the record, Deadpool 2 came in at second place, after those who voted were asked to pick the one blockbuster they were “most looking forward to seeing on the big screen” between April 27th and Labor Day (September 3rd in the States).

If nothing else, this is further proof that Avengers: Infinity War is practically in a league of its own when it comes to hype and pre-release excitement, and that’s something Fandango Managing Editor Erik Davis addressed to mark this recent result.

This summer will deliver an unprecedented selection of movies, offering something for everyone at the multiplex. Fans are particularly looking forward to ‘Avengers: Infinity War,’ not only the most anticipated film of the summer, but perhaps the decade. It’s the culmination of more than a dozen Marvel movies, and the fact that no one has seen the movie yet only adds to the excitement.

Elsewhere in the rankings, Solo: A Star Wars Story, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom and Pixar’s Incredibles II rounded out the top five, while Sandra Bullock (Ocean’s 8) and Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool 2) were named as Fan Favorite Actress and Fan Favorite Actor, respectively.

Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War, the most-anticipated film of the summer (if not the decade), is due to arrive on April 27th.
